Cupp is a nurse at HonorHealth Thompson Peak Center in addition to being a wife and a mother to two young kids.

She spent 14 hours a day taking care of COVID-19 patients all the while she was nursing her own mother who was battling cancer.

On Tuesday night she gets a well-deserved break to cheer on her Suns. This will actually be the first Suns game Cupp has attended in person.

Her husband and her bosses knew about the surprise, so she got off early and her husband got a babysitter!
